Excellent - small problem Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Perfect addon - well done, developer.

One thing though...FEBE Options window has a yellow background (both the window and the buttons). This happens on Firefox 34.0.5. When on Firefox 33.1.1, everything seems OK.

........................................................................................

Thank you for your quick reply, Chuck. Unfortunately, I can't access the customsoftwareconsult.com site - I've tried that before, as I wanted to post the "yellow" thingy issue there, not within a review.

I guess I'll just wait till the next FEBE version/update for a solution. In the meantime, I'll use the 8.0.5 version which works perfectly with the new Firefox 34.0.5 anyway.

For anyone who's reading this, don't let it stop you from using FEBE - it's a great addon, and this problem is a minor one.

Beyond Cool & Useful Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Thank You!!! My first attempt glitched, so I figured... "great, another add-on that sounds too good to be true and fails, bummer". Then, my 2nd try went off without a hitch and every export/backup has worked flawlessly ever since. This thing is beyond awesome.
I have 4 computers in front of me for various tasks (1 for play), not to mention, being the goto nerd that everyone asks to help set them up... This has saved me so much time, my appreciation is near endless. Once I finish college and am a bit more stable, you can rest assured that a generous donation is headed your way.

Hi Chuck,

FEBE 8.0.5 always worked great.
I set to backup "[X] Both".

But now,
with latest FF v. 33.0.
(in Linux Ubuntu 12.04),
FEBE keeps the progress window
open forever:

"Please wait for backup to complete,
...this window will close then...".

But the window never closes,
even after waiting many minutes.

Yet,
looking at the FEBE backup folder,
there IS a big ".FBU" file there:
profileFx33.0{default}.fbu
with the correct,
present date- and time- stamp!

(Progress window
used to close after 1 minute or less before,
and show me the backup stats page,
with all addons, etc.).

Now, the stats page with addons, etc,
never shows up ...

Help! worked fine before...

GREAT add-on and it's so easy to use and set as you want. This is just what i needed if i ever have to reinstall FF. No more worries with my extensions, add-ons or bookmarks. This gives me peace of mind since i have over 80 bookmarks and about 12 add-ons. I was surprised how easy it's to set up just like you want and i would call this a "set and forget it" tool. Self explanatory instructions so really no need to scratch your head. Thank you Chuck for an excellent tool for us FF users. This is worth my $10, (I know you where asking for $5)... it's really that good... If you guys are unsure about your FF add-ons and bookmark backups just get this add-on... you won't regret it.... guaranteed ...

Great! But Doesn't Work With Firefox 28.0 Anymore :( Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

I LOVE this extension, along with all of Chuck Baker's addons. However, I am unable to use FEBE with my version of Firefox now, and I refuse to update to the new versions.

The bests! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I always install this with all updates as standard for FF to backup all my addons with session manager https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/?src=search etc. If you can integrate with session manager developer it will be amazing and Tab Mix Plus https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-mix-plus/?src=userprofile, this is one of my most used addons, all of these one are. Expect a future donation, keep at it your addons are some of the best bar non.

Great Addon but buggy support forum Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

FEBE is a great addon and in the last days I did the missing full translation into German. But as I wanted to register to the support forum I just get a stupid error message that within Gmail e-mail addresses no dot is allowed.

Therefore I can't register with my e-mail that is like 'firstname.lastname(at)gmail.com' because of the dot between firstname and lastname. Would be nice if this check would be disabled.

I don't want to create a second e-mail just for register at the forum and forward it to my real e-mail address.

And as already mentioned: IMHO it is no solution to say clear the FEBE settings to get rid of this damned CLEO error message. At least for me as a software developer now for more than 20 years...

Just my two cent.

Use your gmail address without the periods

The message you are getting reads: "Gmail addresses may not contain any periods to the left of the '@' symbol. Please re-type the email address without any periods. i.e., 'myname@gmail.com' is OK, 'my.name@gmail.com' is not." You do not need to use a different email account, just use your gmail without the dots.

Latest version keeps warning to make a backup everytime Firefox is opened, even if last scheduled backup was made. Had to disable the warnings. Please fix it.

Edit: This has been fixed since my review.

Latest version won't save bookmarks whether json or html. Not sure why. Resetting preferences didn't help. Running FIrefox 28. Might have to revert back to older version. Other than that, this is a solid add-on. Sort of like the Ninite for Firefox.

Here's how to close the Error Console... Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

For those reporting that they can't close the Error Console, it took me a bit to figure out, but do this. Open FEBE Options. Click on the Advanced Tab. Click the Miscellaneous sub-tab. Uncheck "FEBE Debug Mode". Excellent Add-on!

REPLY TO AUTHOR - Thanks Chuck. Actually I was so shocked when this happened. I thought it was caused by another extension that I had installed called Console² 0.9. The screen looked very similar except it usually opens in its own box. I quickly closed the FEBE Welcome tab because I thought something was going on with that extension and I immediately disabled it. When that didn't fix it, I uninstalled it, but alas, it was still there even after restarting Firefox. Then that's when it hit me - it must be FEBE because it was the most recently updated add-on and just presented the Welcome page. So I poked around in the options and found the Debug box checked. And I didn't realize this was a major update until now. It just automatically updated and few of us endusers follow version numbers that closely. The ironic thing is, I'm usually one of those people that always read the changes in a new version whenever an updated add-on presents a welcome or thanks for updating page. But this time I was so distracted and frustrated by the Error Console and thinking it was another extension, that I immediately closed the tab to see if it would also close the console.

FEBE preferences should be cleared after any major update

Thanks for pointing this out. Another way to resolve this is to clear FEBE preferences.

In fact, on the FEBE Welcome page that is displayed after updating it states "Important: If you are upgrading from a previous FEBE major version or upgrading from a older Firefox version, you should clear your previous settings. Go to Tools > FEBE > FEBE Options > Advanced > Clear FEBE preferences."

This only needs to be done once after any major FEBE upgrade (which this is).

FF error console always open and can't be closed. Only disabling FEBE works. FEBE 8.0.4 on FF 24.5.0 ESR. Great addon.

wrong with restore Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

It's pretty good at backing up, but restore doesn't work on Mac on FF version 24.0.
Verified with an empty FF profile.

Apart from this, it's not bad.
